A scenic day around Cape Town's coast with your own private guide


A visit to Cape Point is compulsory if your stay in Cape Town is anything longer than one day. We drive down the eastern side of the peninsula along the False Bay Coast via Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and Simon's Town to Cape Point, the southern tip of the peninsula. On the return we drive the western side along the Atlantic coastline past Scarborough, Misty Cliffs and Kommetjie, scenic Chapman's Peak Drive, through Hout Bay and then follow the Atlantic seaboard past Llandudno, the Twelve Apostles, through Camps Bay, Clifton Beach, Bantry Bay, Sea Point and Green Point. Watch a colony of African Penguins at Boulders Beach, drive through the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, climb up (or for the not so energetic, use the funicular ride) to the lighthouse at Cape Point, watch the seals at Hout Bay. In Simon's Town we stop at the statue of Just Nuisance, a Great Dane that received the rank of Able Seaman in the Royal Navy and was buried with full military honours!

Itinerary

We drive around the Cape Peninsula in a clockwise direction. In South Africa we drive on the left side of the road, and by doing it clockwise, we ensure that we are always on the scenic side and have easy access to view points along the way.

~ We leave Cape Town and drive the M3 to reach the False Bay coast at Muizenberg.
~ We follow the coastline through the little coastal villages of Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek to Simon's Town.
~ Visit the African Penguin colony ant Boulders Beach.
~ Continue along the False Bay coast to the Cape of Good Hope section of Table Mountain National Park.
~ Take the Flying Dutchman funicular to visit the historic lighthouse on top of Cape Point, and take in the
breathtaking views from the cliff lookouts.
~ Visit the Cape of Good Hope and take your picture behind the big sign board.
~ We return to Cape Town along the western coastline through the conservation villages of Scarborough
and Misty Cliffs to Noordhoek Village.
~ Drive the spectacular Chapman's Peak Drive.

A Recent Review of this tour

Daniel provided precisely what we requested and so much more during our tour of the Cape Peninsula. He was punctual, well organized, enjoyable and expressed his knowledge in an interesting and clear manner. His knowledge and presentation were from one who has lived a lifetime in the area so his depth of understanding is second nature. His good natured interaction was a joy and enhanced our visit to the Cape Town Peninsula and South Africa immensely. A five star experience without question.
